I finally have my hands on my Lidocaine patches - yay!! I won't start using them until tomorrow because they are "worn" in 12-hour stretches...watch out for the updates.
DS has been able to play in the garden today and was happy to play with the empty laundry basket for ages. No need to buy expensive toys for children! DH managed to persuade his parents to come over for a visit...they're going back to Derbyshire tomorrow.
